superstorm sandy, which struck just over three months ago. now, there is some good news in the region. both airports in new york have apparently opened and resumed flights. that's obviously not the case here in boston and won't be for quite some time. in fact, the blizzard warning here has now been extended until 1:00 this afternoon. that's the latest live here in boston. i'm jay grey. back to you now. >> jay, thank you. >> things aren't much better on the rails. acela canceled service today between new york and boston. trains between new york and d.c. will run as scheduled. amtrak is reducing service between new york and boston and will decide later today on what to do for sunday. if you have a ticket but decide not to travel because of the weather, you can get a refund or a voucher for future travel. >>> here in d.c., most ground and air travel is not affected unless, of course, you're trying to get to an airport that's blanketed in snow. some travelers were stuck in place, many of them trying to find another way to get to their destinations. news 4's derek ward continues our team coverag

about doing something about greenhouse gases, haven't the storms, superstorm sandy, irene last year, haven't all of these recent storms and the fluctuations in temperature taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it in china and elsewhere? >> when you say i'm talking about drilling, think about what we're drilling for right now. think about where the boom is in this country. it's with natural gas. in order to access that natural gas, you do have to drill. what it has yaelded this country is an abundance of a resource that they read. it's able to bring our cost down and able to bring about jobs and economic opportunity that we wouldn't have had. how do we pay for the damage caused by a sandy? how do we move towards that next generation of technology if we don't have the resources that we need? we can gain those through our own domestic production and we can put revenues towards a renewable manager deployment fund, towards mitigating some of what we are seeing from impa

superstorm sandy are fresh in his mind and the mind of many people in the new york city area. new york city police commissioner ray kelly is here with me. we'll be talking in just a moment. we want to go to the north first and new england which has been getting pummeled through the day. this is one of the ten biggest storms in history. in boston right now, already breaking the record of 27 inches which was set ten years ago back in 2003. and that is the fear that made massachusetts governor duvall patrick to take drastic action. he said, if you are on the road driving after 4:00 this afternoon, you could face a year in jail. a significant step to make. "outfront," jason carroll, he's live in boston. ali velshi is live. jason, it has been a pretty incredible day there. and record snowfall throughout. what's it been like? >> well, i have to tell you, erin, condition here in boston are frankly miserable. it's a kind of icy snow that's been blowing around in your face. and just to give you an idea the condition of snow, earlier today it was very sticky. it's starting to become much more powdery
and the folks in staten island, they really suffered. because when you think of superstorm sandy, that was just in the end of october. here they are again, so many of them, don't even have roofs over their heads, let alone power and heat. so just keep staten island and the folks really who were hit so hard from sandy, in your thoughts and we'll check in throughout the night in different parts of staten island, the region here. i want to talk about travel. because it's been banned in two states, massachusetts, and connecticut. people paid attention to that. in greenwich, connecticut tonight, the only souls in sight are ashley ban field and the driver of a snowplow. watch. >> it is quiet in this area. people are really heeding the travel ban. 4:00 today, the governor said everybody off the road and that's that. we're one of the four states in the state of emergency. i want you to see this beautiful area looks like on a friday night. just one plow. that's what you see. the contractors have been coming down the street, trying to keep up with the snow. this is how we wish the snow at cnn. it's the p

people here have just been through it, really. the end of october, superstorm sandy slammed into several of the states here who are now grappling with this massive blizzard. we'll take you to staten island, see how many people there are faring, many without heat, without power, after this. to grow, we have to boost our social media visibility. more "likes." more tweets. so, beginning today, my son brock and his whole team will be our new senior social media strategists. any questions? since we make radiator valves wouldn't it be better if we just let fedex help us to expand to new markets? hmm gotta admit that's better than a few "likes." i don't have the door code. who's that? he won a contest online to be ceo for the day. how am i supposed to run a business here without an office?!

. >> reporter: a region still recovering from superstorm sandy which just struck over three months ago. i know you can see the lights on behind me, or i hope you can through the snow. what i tell you, the power in the core of downtown is still on and that likely won't be a problem, because much of the infrastructure here is buried, but across the region and across new england, and i know you've been talking about this, more than 600,000 people without power, that number will likely climb as the accumulation numbers climb throughout the day. >> absolutely. jay, i think massachusetts has been hit the hardest with power outages, 404,000 people out. it's more than 600,000 across new england. i want to ask you about the roads. we got word from governor malloy, all connecticut roads closed until further notice. has there been plow work where you are there in boston, or just don't even bother until it's all over yet? >> reporter: no, what's amazing, alex, there are plows out right now and are people trying to work. i wouldn't say that they are making a ton of progress, because the snow is coming too
superstorm sandy, aren't sure how long the power will be out this time. >> couldn't get much worse. so, we're hoping for the best. >> reporter: in the rockaway section of new york city, it's a similar feeling of here we go again. this home was flooded during sandy, forcing sheila out for six weeks. this time, she's staying put. >> it's a little disheartening that we're getting just hit and hit and hit. >> reporter: learning the hard way, many decided to stock up on ice and gasoline for the generator. back on long island, the national grid that controls the power lines says this time around, the response will be faster because they, too, learned their lesson. making sure crews were in place before the snow started falling. what part of the storm concerning you the most? >> not only snow. but winds in excess of 60 miles per hour. >> reporter: now, it's up to crews like this team, called in from ontario, canada, to go to work. >> when the poles are on the ground, that's when this piece of equipment comes out. dig a hole, put a new pole in. >> reporter: that process, how long does it take? >>
: flooding is also a major concern in coastal areas including many towns hit hard by superstorm sandy. this staten island resident who gets help from a tent shelter is getting worried. >> i really don't know what the people down here are going to do. if we lose this, i don't know what we're going to do. this is like the only thing we have here. >> reporter: the powerful blizzard was created after two storms, one from the west, the other from the south, merged. airlines canceled thousands of flights. >> i was in the other airport, jfk. they rebooked me and sent me over here. i got here. now they said this one is canceled. so now they have me booked for a flight tomorrow night if flights are going. >> reporter: the heaviest snowfall is expected overnight with wind gusts possibly reaching 75 miles per hour. in new york jamie colby, fox news. >>> you saw the blizzard taking its toll on travelers, the impacts felt all the way here to the d.c. region, been a long day for many people faced with canceled flights, trains and buses. fox 5's maureen umeh with that story. >> most flights north
